01 Our Brand
Welcome to Wyoming Artisan Art. We are a husband-and-wife team based out of the beautiful Platte Valley in southern Wyoming. Our story began in 2020 when we were researching how to refinish old countertops and we discovered a video of other artisans using epoxy resin for various projects, including countertops. One rabbit hole led to another and before we knew it, we decided to attempt to make our first resin charcuterie breadboard. It wasn’t perfect but having done a much better job than we expected ignited the spark of what would become Wyoming Artisan Art.
We take pride in producing unique items which go on to be heirlooms in homes across the country.
We use a UV-protected epoxy that is made in the USA and is both food-safe and eco-friendly. This particular charcuterie board was made from walnut hardwood, sea glass, and gemstone chips in a semi-transparent aqua pigmented epoxy.
02 Our Craftsmanship
A citrus and spice resin charcuterie board
Our pieces are created by combining beautiful artisan hardwood boards and an eco-friendly epoxy resin that creates a showcase of our stunning charcuterie/cutting boards as both functional and a work of art.
We are always on a deliberate mission to use USA-based companies that offer high-quality, ethically sourced premium materials to further the value of our craftsmanship.
Epoxy Resin —
We use an epoxy resin that is structurally formulated to be the most scratch-resistant, durable, and tough bar top epoxy on the market! The epoxy we use offers the highest UV epoxy protection; No resin is exempt from sun damage over time, BUT this US-based company touts their UV Epoxy formulation will ensure that their product will stay crystal clear for longer than any other competitor!
The epoxy we use has an advanced formula for strength; 80+ Shore D strength rating when fully cured, which provides the inherent toughness and durability.
There are lots of types of wood out there, but a few stand out as superior choices for our boards.
Maple — is a popular choice. Maple is a hard, closed-grain wood. This means that it’s durable, able to resist bacteria, and features just the right amount of hardness. Maple wood is light and fairly neutral in color, so it coordinates well with many kitchen color schemes.
Walnut — similarly, walnut is another hardwood that’s an excellent choice in the kitchen. Its dark color is one of its main appeals, and although it’s softer than maple it will still hold up well over time. Walnut falls in the “just right” category of hardness that’s perfect for both board and knife maintenance.
Olive Wood — olive wood is a very hard wood with a dense grain and is naturally treated and as a result, is ideal for food preparation. The large olive wood boards are very rare and can last not only for your lifetime but for generations.
The premium colored pigments that we use in our craft are sourced from a US-based company that carefully hand-select and stringently tests the micas, pigments, FDA batch-certified lakes and dyes, and glitters. A large part of our selection of this company is that they source exclusively from ethical supply lines. They require declarations from every supplier stating that no minors participate in any operations, including mining and factory work.
We collaborate, plan, and handcraft home décor that’s functional, beautiful, and is as unique as each and every one of us.
03 Our Design
The planning, design flow, and layering of the various mediums are staged ahead of time. Working in harmony with rich grained wood or natural stone, the mixed blend of mediums are mixed with epoxy to form stunning one-of-a-kind abstract art.
Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.
Each piece created is distinctive and stands alone, meaning no two compositions are the same. The creation process is very suspenseful and invigorating. The art starts out showcasing displays of spiritual, layered scenes of vigorous energy; all moving with their own velocity jockeying for position forming a divine dimensional end. Truly serendipitous, the final painting can’t be envisioned until all motion has ceased. Each piece can take several days to a week to complete.
